    Locked after sleep mode wakeup keeps coming back

    I don't want my account locked when my computer comes out of sleep mode. I
    want it to go right back to my desktop (I am the sole user). I have found
    that when I go to Power Options, Require a password on wakeup, it is always
    set to Don't require a password no matter what. I can toggle that to Require
    a password and back and my account will not lock on wakeup. But a few days
    later it starts locking again and I have to toggle the setting again.

    What the h@#l is going on and how can I fix it so I can continously come
    straight back out of sleep mode? Thanks.

    Do you use a screen saver? If so does it require a password? They may
    conflict.

    I use a screensaver with no password. I enter sleep mode manually since the
    one hour automatic does not work with a screensaver. Why would a screensaver
    lock my account? Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Re: Locked after sleep mode wakeup keeps coming back

    Unlike others in this thread, my problem has emerged after the most recent Windows Update. I had already disabled the "require password on wakeup" and I didn't need a password until now, even though the option hasn't (spontaneously) changed as seems to be the case for some users.

    I'm guessing that there must be something about the updates that I installed that has changed the settings in a non-obvious way. Of all the recent updates, I suspect the culprit is one or more of the following:

    Security Update for Windows Vista for x64-based Systems KB970238
    Security Update for Windows Vista for x64-based Systems KB961501
    Security Update for Windows Vista for x64-based Systems KB968537

    The other updates were regarding Office, ActiveX Killbits, Malicious Software removal or IE8, so I doubt that they are the cause.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue and if so, have they figured out (short of removing the update) how to solve it?
